The pride of the mounted police.
When we were searching for a name for our
first Irish Sports Pub, we decided to name it
after a much admired family hero from the
past, a man by the name of Johnny Malloy.
Johnny Malloy grew up in the early 1920’s in
Cleveland, Ohio, in a tough area populated
by Irish immigrants. Like many young Irish
lads, he dreamed of becoming a policeman.
He not only achieved his dream, he was assigned
to the Mounted Division. A bit of Irish
luck, since Johnny also loved horses. It was a
Johnny Malloy and his horse, Sonny, were
loved by all who knew them (even the badguys).
He was always friendly and ready to lend a helping hand.
One of Johnny’s most enjoyable duties was riding in the annual St. Patrick’s Day Parade,carrying the “Stars and Stripes”.
Johnny would have loved it - an Irish pub named after himself - the relatives back in Ireland would sure be proud.
